First Long Trip '16 FR330DS

After several local brake-in weekends we finally took 10 days and travelled from Cincinnati to Pensacola (750 miles on way). We had been there before in our class c so this place was not new to us. Before we left I did the easy fix, the sway bar adjustment, and that made a huge difference. We also tow dollied our Kia Soul without a problem but we are going to flat tow in the future (did not have enough time to install a base plate so we rented a tow dolly). The drive down I-65 was windy but with the sway bars adjusted it was very manageable. Getting around was not a problem but with he gas tank lid towards the rear of the coach did force me to block some of the gas station thoroughfares but people did not complain.
Everything worked well, better than I thought really. Usually on a new coach/camper some things will be wrong but we only found small issues. One day it was 87 degrees with 88 percent humidity and the AC worked fine. I don't see us having a problem with that. Having the doors between the living quarters and the bedroom helps, and closing the vents in one or the other room would help a lot but we did not have to do that yet. Fridge, furnace, shower, hot water heater, etc... everything worked as it is suppose to.
The only issues we had are: the sliding window on the passenger side the molding is scrunched and will not open and after a while on rough roads the rear view/side view picture would flicker and then go out. That was about it. If I didn't have to get back home for treatments we would have stayed much longer. A lot of people with bigger coaches were very interested in the FR3.
So, that's my .2 worth.

Sounds like a good trip. Did you stay at the Military park? The passenger window molding, is it on the bottom? I found mine was curdled up in the front of the slot, I pulled it out and RE-seated it. Works fine now.
